This Mushroom Bacon Burger Will Make You Beg For It – Recipe
If you love Burgers and live in the Boston area, you know all about the Boston Magazine Battle of the Burger. It’s a competition to find the best Burger in Boston. Restaurants and Chefs battle it out in a winner takes all contest by letting attendees of the event pick their favorite Burger.

This year, it’s not just the Chefs and restaurants who have something to prove, it’s also the Home Grillers.
Home Burger Cooks were asked to submit a Burger recipe of their own using our ground beef. Boston Magazine picked the top 3 and they will battle each other in a Home Griller competition.
One lucky winner, as chosen by a panel of experts, including by our very own Jamie Schweid, will take home a professional grill from Kenyon Grills, and a party pack from Schweid & Sons, which includes $200 in premium ground beef and an apron for their own backyard cookout.
Here is a recipe preview of one of the Burgers that will be in the competition submitted by Christina Ferrara AKA “Everyday Foodie.”

It is hard to believe, but I have never made a burger. That is before today. I am trying to win a burger competition so I am playing off of some beginners luck to bring me victory with this burger. Let me tell you, I think I got it. Not only was the burger delicious and flavorful, the bacon onion spread is good enough to eat on ANYTHING. I really mean anything, this stuff is magic happiness. But all of it works together to make a deliciously happy burger. Since summer is right around the corner, start dragging out those grills and give this recipe a try.
